Miekojärvi Fishing Harbor in Pello in Lapland
The first part of the Miekojärvi fishing harbor was completed in 1987 and its extension in 1991. In 2012, the citizens of Sirkka initiated a project to renovate the harbor to European legislative standards. The establishment licence (laitostunnus) was obtained in autumn 2016. The harbor plant allows for gutting, fileting, grinding, freezing, salting and packing fish.
An extension will be made in 2017 in accordance with the original plans for keeping fishing gear. The machines available are a nailing machine, splitting knife, finishing machine, vacuum sealer, quick freezing cabinet, and a meat grinder.
